  • Conor McGregor’s scheduled attendance Thursday marks his first appearance to promote the Oct. 6 showdown against lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov.

    In the absence of a press tour, the UFC has used an attack on a fighter bus at UFC 223 that briefly landed McGregor in jail as the centerpiece of its promotion for the event, a move one victim of the attack has called tasteless.

    Thursday's appearance will be at Radio City Music Hall in New York City at 5 p.m. ET.

    McGregor hopes to recapture the lightweight title he never lost, challenging defending 155-pound champion Nurmagomedov in UFC 229.
